"The book is a welcome addition to the resources available in the field of architectural structures. It is written from the viewpoint of the building, with all its needs and functions, and allows the design of the building to interact with the structural system and materials so that each informs the other. It should appeal particularly in the teaching environment, where students can be guided into an understanding of the interconnectedness of all the aspects of architectural design." - Peter R. Smith, Architectural Science Review
